Hi everyone,

sorry for the delay, but I was a bit busy.

Concerning the dialogs. In fact, it's not black slang Noralee's speaking but cab drivers' slang. I did some researches in the Net and thought I would be nearer the reality of the taxi drivers' world.

About the fact, she refuses drunk people in her cab, drivers are allowed to do it.

About my descriptions, (black fat woman and Chinese-type guy) I never wanted to be condescending. Clumsy, no doubt, but never condescending. I don't think I am.

Noralee is a rough jewel. As Kevan said "she says some funny things and most of the time she does't realize she is saying them". And I did pay homage to my favorite movie ever "It's a Wonderful Life". It's true I like Angels' stories.

The title is a (bad?) joke name reagarding "The Godfather".

Helio is right, Queen Latifah inspired me.

Pia, don't worry. I did understand what you meant and I didn't take it harshly. I need these kind of things to improve my style. You might know that I wrote this script in a few days after Helio's request and I could have done better (I hope) if I had more time.

Anyway, it's done now.

Spencer and Cindy, thank you for your comments. It touched me.

Michel
